the ball. >> mike: for the heat? >> jeff: they can't get stagnant. you have to keep the ball moving. and try to create open shots. and right now, got to be dwyane wade to play pick and roll basketball. >> mike: wade looking. finding james, inside to bosh. chandler right up on him. bosh on the drive -- lost it out of bounds. dallas ball. what a turnaround here in the fourth quarter. it looked like miami had blown the game open. and the mavericks fighting back. nowitzki. puts it up -- puts it in! two-point game with 2:43 remaining. a 15-2 run. >> jeff: and i like the set they've run the last two times. a staggered pick and roll for jason terry. more traffic, more difficult rotation to nowitzki. >> mike: haslem. misfires.

>> mike: amazing comeback here in game two of the nba finals, with 57.6 seconds remaining. dallas down by 15, with 6:20 remaining. forcing yet another turnover and this bucket would tie the game. and the fans back in dallas watching at the american airlines center erupting. of course, remember, back in 2006 when these two teams met in the finals, game three it was the heat down by 13 with just over six minutes remaining. they came back, won the game that turned the times around. dallas trying to do the same thing with this 17-2 run. but can they finish it off? >> jeff: what is jason terry doing? >> mike: well, he's backing off.
marion will guard james. wade. shot clock at eight. wade steps back. a three -- off the mark. nowitzki, the rebound. hands it off to kidd. >> jeff: miami's gotten very poor shots down the stretch tonight. >> mike: terry to nowitzki. puts it in! dallas goes up by three with 26.7 remaining! a 20-2 run. one of the most incredible comebacks in nba finals history. down 15 with 6:20 remaining and now in the lead.>> jeff: i lov playing out of transition. staggered pick and roll. chandler then pins for nowitzki. a wide open three-pointer. for the best shooter going right now. this is beautiful basketball.
>> mike: and miami with that time-out now out of time-outs. as nowitzki, who has not shot the ball well tonight with a clutch bucket, a three-pointer, and rick carlisle is seeing his team do it again. we mentioned the comeback against oklahoma city, when they were down by 15 with just under five minutes remaining. this down 15 with just over six minutes left, but it's still not over. >> jeff: and miami has downsized, playing bosh at five, bringing mike miller back in the game. >> mark: and the reason why is because, now, defensively, there's a price to pay when one guy is roaming. you put mike miller on the floor, he's a shooter. now you have another threat. >> mike: can they finish it? chalmers wide open -- chalmers knocks down the three and ties the game!
>> jeff: jason terry roaming on the in-bound pass to try to prevent the in-bound pass to go to wade and what a find by lebron james. he just -- jason terry just hanging out. >> mike: how about chalmers? back at kansas, hit that bag shot in the ncaa title game. and this one here ties it up with 24.5 remaining. big shot after big shot here as we wind down the stretch here of game two. and now dallas is out of time-outs. miami, however, has a foul to give. what a remarkable finish here to game two. and we might still have a lot of time remaining, if this one goes to o.t. >> mark: great, great finish.
but i am absolutely stunned at the e defense terry just played. there's no excuse for helping in that situation. your job is to stay connect ed. what coach talked about. look at the pass by lebron james. immediately instead of waiting for wade, recognizing that terry is cheating the play. this was a shoot around jump shot. that's a practice jump shot. and mario chalmers knocks it down. >> mike: so, for dallas, 24.5 remaining. ok .5 between the shot clock and game clock. how far down to they go to make sure that this is the final shot attempt but at the same time, if they miss, get a chance for an offensive rebound? >> jeff: well, you don't have to worry as much about shooting, like, right at the buzzer, because miami has no time-outs left to advance it. but you have to take it down to four or under. certainly. you don't want to give james or
wade a chance to push it. >> mike: and if i'm the mavs, i'm running the same play. but i'm not putting the ball in jason terry's hands until i'm ready to attack. the same double screen and roll they're getting quality offense out of. >> mike: chthey put bosh on nowitzki in that possession. seven to shoot. nowitzki. drives. lefty layup, banks it in with 3.6 remaining. miami out of time-outs. trailing by two. james back to wade. wade puts it up for the win -- off the mark. and dallas has tied the finals with one of the most incredible comebacks in nba finals history. dirk nowitzki, the last nine points for the mavericks, and this building has gone quiet.
the mavericks do it again. >> mark: what a great game. and i love down the stretch, they put the ball in their best player's hands and dirk nowitzki did not settle for a jump shot. put the ball on the floor and i guess we can say that that left finger is okay. finishes with a big-time lay-in, and then, getting back, stopping the basketball and contesting the shot of dwyane wade. >> jeff: and, again, putting bosh on him who had done a good job -- i think the heat were late to help here. >> mike: they had a foul to give, too. >> jeff: that's just -- that's just too easy. and mike, that foul to give is very interesting, because you would have had to take it earlier, versus when he bounces it starting to go to the rim. >> mike: nowitzki the last nine maverick points. he's with doris. >> doris: dirk, you trailed by 15 points with six minutes to go
and all the momentum was with miami heat. how did you guys turn this thing around? >> well, defensively we really got up and into them. we pressured them full court and then we scrambled defensively. and we gave up some second, some offensive rebounds but we kept scrambling offensively. we can move and we can play off the flow. i think they are really doing a great job on 0 set offense. so -- i thought that the stops and the runouts really made the game easier for us. >> doris: when chalmers made the three, you were frustrated going to the bench. take us to the last play and your ability to respond? >> well, you know, to get the lead after being down 15 was big. and then we just leave a shooter wide open. so, it was a mental breakdown. but we still had a good position. 24 seconds, ball, tie game. and they had a foul to give, so, i think it went a little earlier, thinking they might foul and we have to take it out
of bounds. but it was able to get by bosh and get the layup. >> doris: i think we'll forgive terry for that last play. how important was it to see him make shots? >> well, they run all our shooters off the line. veryat let you can on the perimeter. so, finally there in the fourth quarter, we found some openings. we got is open looks. we got the runout layup. we definitely needed to score in there. >> doris: dirk, thank you. mike? >> mike: a 22-5 run, last 6:20. dallas with an unbelievable victory here in miami to snap the home winning streak. first home loss of the playoffs for the heat. and nowitzki is the winner of tonight's finals player of the game presented by t-mobile. be sure to tune into game three coming up from dallas and you get a chance to vote again. as the dallas mavericks even up the 2011 nba finals at one game
apiece. he scores the bucket here in miami. the maverick fans back in dallas at the american airlines center erupt. and they will welcome home their team in game three on sunday with open arms as they get that victory on the road. such an unlikely win as miami seemed to be in complete control with just over six minutes remaining and a 15-point lead. so, the finals will continue, there will definitely be a game five. sunday night, back to dallas. little earlier tip. shortly after 8:00 eastern, as the series shifts to dallas for games three, four and five. our coverage begins at 7:30 eastern with "buick regal nba countdown." an amazing playoff game in what's been an amazing playoff run for the dallas mavericks and for the nba. and more to come. again, the final score, 95-93. for mark jackson, jeff van gundy, doris burke, producer tim corrigan and our entire crew.
